Alix- While reading this I was thinking, "Wow, she probably shouldn't be going to the store when she's on bedrest." Then I read what you are doing this weekend. You should maybe speak with your doctor about this because I was under the assumtion that bedrest meant bedrest. Like only get up to go to the bathroom and shower and that's it. Not baby shower and wedding. If it were me I would speak with my doctor. I wouldn't want anything to happen.

I'm hoping to catch up, just realized I hadn't posted since the Feb board. My birthday was Fri and our plans were put on hold. DH's Aunt passed away and we had her services over the weekend. He also got a second job at Lowe's working nights and Sats. He was on Mon and last night, off tonight through Fri. He bought me a Carvel cake, but we still haven't had a chance to eat it yet. Hopefully we'll make up some family time when Lucas and I come back from my parents tomorrow.
I'll be back to read...
Love and ((HUGS)) to you all ♥

Thanks Alix ♥ I know you want to keep your hands busy, but yes you DO need a break. I know what you're going through with bedrest. Please be careful though hun. You can't be going to the store. Wow, a rehearsal dinner, wedding and baby shower! Seems like an awful lot to do when you're not supposed to be moving around. Oh I see, at least the shower is at your home, you can sit the whole time. Same with the dinner, no getting up. And, no dancing for you at the wedding I thought I could do more than my body was ready to allow me, my doctors always scolded me when I made light of the two words together, BED AND REST, you have to be strict about it. Keep Bryce in there as long as possible. Although 6 pounds is great, that's how much Lucas was when he was born at 36 weeks How are the pains?

Alix: I know, becoming a mom makes you an even more of a "busy body" believe me I was going bonkers lying around all the time. I'm glad the bath helps with your discomfort, I was taking a lot of those in the last weeks. He's all cramped up in there, they just run out of room and don't know where else to go so you feel every single movement or adjustment they make.
Ok, I have to get back to work again I'll be back...
